THE BOHEMIAN GUIDE TO MONOGAMY operates at the literary edge of the bizarro movement, equally obsessed with weirdness and language, with boundaries and meaning.
A patchwork of interlinked short fiction assembles itself into a unified novella that deftly explores the pains and pleasures of love, commitment, family and—yes—monogamy.
In this collection, Superman searches for prostitutes, Leonardo DiCaprio falls in love with George Clooney, and a murderous midget learns the limits of revenge while a sperm cell struggles to share his side of the story. And it all manages to form a unified tale, one told with prose that demonstrates an uncommon mastery of tone and dark humor while capturing the primal impulses that seethe beneath—and therefore threaten—all human relationships.
